In the mood for (cheesy) romance? There's nothing like a Nicholas Sparks movie. Ever since Message In A Bottle came out in 1999, audiences have been eager to watch every new film based on the latest book by the beloved author. While some of the films are arguably better than most (A Walk To Remember will always be a classic, but there have been some recent stories that don't pack the same kind of emotional wallop), the movies are always great guilty pleasures.
Wondering what your perfect Nicholas Sparks movie is? Let's take a look. Read on to find out which Nicholas Sparks movie you are, based on your MBTI.
For many people, there's nothing more romantic than love letters. This 2010 movie, starring Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum, is about a couple who writes letters to each other over a period of time.
If you're an ISTJ or "Responsible Realist," then this is your Nicholas Sparks movie. You're "dependable" and it seems like you would definitely communicate through letters since you're detail-oriented and a very neat person. ISTJs are "loyal" and "steadfast," which is how the characters in this movie treat each other. ISTJs are the types of people who are cool with commitment, and Savannah and John do, thankfully, find their way back to each other.
This 2013 Nicholas Sparks film will appeal to people with big hearts and a willingness to suspend their disbelief. Yup, this movie involves a ghost. The movie, which features Josh Duhamel, Cobie Smulders, and Julianne Hough, will also appeal to someone whose MBTI involves being creative and not having a super strict personality. That means that if your MBTI is ENFP or "Imaginative Motivator," then this is your Nicholas Sparks movie.
You would find this movie interesting because you're "stimulated by new people and experiences." While some might say that the plot of the movie is too corny for words, you would be willing to look past that and get invested in the storyline.
The Choice came out in 2016 and isn't among the most well-known of the Nicholas Sparks movies. When Gabby (Teresa Palmer) and Travis (Benjamin Walker) are next-door neighbors, they're into each other ASAP. Unfortunately (but obviously since this is a Nicholas Sparks movie), their love story isn't without trials and tribulations. Something truly bad happens to Gaby, and Travis has to stay strong throughout it all.
Travis is determined to reach his goals, from being a vet to making things work with Gabby, and that makes him an ESTJ or "Efficient Organizer." If this is your MBTI as well, then this is your Nicholas Sparks movie. "Pragmatic" and "decisive" are some of your main traits, and just like Travis, you would know the life that you want to live and work toward those dreams.
In this 2008 movie, Richard Gere and Diane Lane fall in love while they're both at a weekend house. Like almost every other Nicholas Sparks movie, there is a heartbreaking quality to this one, and the story becomes really sad. This movie, in particular, is about dealing with emotions and looking at life straight-on. All of the characters have struggled in different ways, especially in terms of matters of the heart, and they have to figure out how to move on.
Because Diane Lane's character, Adrienne, has to move on and look to the future, this is your perfect Nicholas Sparks movie if you're an ENTJ or "Decisive Strategist." The official description says that ENTJs "usually see the big picture and think strategically about the future," and that's what she does.
This 2012 movie stars Zac Efron as a soldier named Logan who falls in love with Beth (Taylor Schilling) after discovering a picture of her first. Yup, that sounds like the beginning of a Nicholas Sparks movie.
This is your Nicholas Sparks film if your MBTI is ISFP or "Versatile Supporter." Logan fits this personality type, too, as he cares about Beth and wants to help her. He's basically drawn to her from the very start, even from just seeing the picture. ISFPs are "attuned to others," "kind," and "tolerant."
Released in 2014, The Best Of Me features Michelle Monaghan and James Marsden as a couple named Amanda and Dawson. Granted, this is a much more melodramatic story than some of the others on this list, but it still has the heart and caring tone that every Nicholas Sparks movie features.
The couple wants to be together even though life really doesn't think that they should be (like the fact that she's married with a kid). If your MBTI is INFP and you're a "Thoughtful Idealist," then this is your movie. You will sit there watching this movie, hoping that they can make it work, and you're "compassionate," "curious," and "devoted" just like the characters.
Released in 2010, The Last Song is known as the movie where Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth met and fell in love. (They're married now, so, clearly, Nicholas Sparks movies really are super romantic.) It's a sweet story about a girl staying with her dad for the summer who finds love.
Miley's character is a rebel named Ronnie who follows in the movie footsteps of many teenagers before her. She would be an ESTP or "Energetic Problem-Solver" because she's "spontaneous" and not into "routine." The Last Song is your Nicholas Sparks movie if this is your MBTI as well.
The Nicholas Sparks movie that started it all, Message In A Bottle has become a part of pop culture history. What's more romantic than discovering a bottle on the beach with a piece of paper inside of it?
Since Meg Ryan's character, Theresa, is a journalist, she's interested in learning what she can about the paper. If you've seen this movie, you love it because you want to get to the bottom of it, too. Your MBTI is ISTP or "Logical Pragmatist." You will do "what needs to be done to solve the problem" just like Theresa, who finds the guy behind the love letter, Garrett (Kevin Costner). You'll be rooting for her to figure it out the whole time.
'90s kids will always love this movie, which starred Shane West and Mandy Moore as teens from opposite social circles who fall in love. Since she has cancer, it's a really heartbreaking movie, with some singing (of course) and lots of emotional moments. It's definitely a classic.
Shane West's character, Landon, learns that being Mr. Popular isn't the most crucial thing in the world, and he shows Jamie so much love and compassion that it's truly charming and genuine. If your MBTI is ISTJ or "Practical Helper," then you definitely love this movie. Like Landon, you would want to be there for Jamie and do what you can to make her happy. ISTJs are "sensitive" and "dependable."
Forever known as the movie that will make anyone cry buckets (even if they have seen it before about a million times), The Notebook stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams as a couple who is incredibly in love but who are torn apart by, well, life. This tearjerker is definitely the most famous Nicholas Sparks movie.
Both of the main characters, Noah and Allie, could be described as "sensitive and reserved" and "idealistic." In their younger days, the circumstances are never perfect for them to be together... until—phew—they finally are. They both have ideas about what love should look like, and they are truly the perfect couple.
